cpt code for mrcp - Hello Radiology Experts out there

    Does MRCP includes MIP or 76376/76377 should be documented separately for MIP?

    Any idea on this?

    QUESTION: How should an MRI of the abdomen performed
    in conjunction with an MRCP study be reported?
    ANSWER: If imaging of the abdomen is performed concurrently
    with a magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography
    (MRCP) study, it is appropriate to report one of the MRI of
    the abdomen codes (74181, 74182, or 74183) plus a 3-D
    reconstruction code (76376 or 76377). An additional MRI of
    the abdomen code should not be reported, as performance of
    an additional sequence or two would be considered part of the
    base procedure code.
    A magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP)
    study includes MIP cholangiographic images, as well as any
    axial and/or coronal abdominal MR cross-sectional images.

    Thanks Sreenivas. Plz correct me if my understanding is correct, if 3D with MRCP, code MRI abdomen code with 76376/76377, If MIP with MRCP, code only MRCP.

    Default 76377 3D Reconstruction - Script Q
    Does anyone know how the order is handled on this? Often it's not in the original order because it isn't warranted until the initial findings are developed.
